We found this restaurant via the Portland Travel app (a must-download). We were surprised to be able to get a table right away--this place was populated but not super lively. Its low key vibe enabled waiters and seemingly chefs to spend time with us, making some great wine recommendations as well as serving us an amazing small plate tasting menu.... More

My wife and I enjoyed a great evening at Park Kitchen. They do both small and large plates that can be ordered tapas-style, but I recommend going with the tasting menu. It's a way for the chef to send you selections from the kitchen in a way that allows each dish to build upon the last. This also includes dessert.... More

On our first trip to Portland we were staying close to the Pearl District, and decided to give Park Kitchen a try because the hotel told us it was a good farm-to-table restaurant. We were very apprehensive when reviewing the menu, honestly, based on the descriptions, nothing jumped out at me. There were three of us dining, so we decided... More

Ate here before and it was excellent. This time around,not so good. The pork dish was dry, weak on flavor and simply uninspired. Frankly, the only good part of the entire meal was the wine and the corn soup. The waiter was good and wanted to replace the meal but it wasn't that bad. It simply wasn't what you expect... More

We were a bit put off by our server's attitude but, as diners, we are far more interested in the food. In that regard, we weren't totally satisfied. The green beans and bacon were deep fried, tempura-like and served with a mild tarragon aioli. The bacon was an odd addition, and it was tough. The aioli needed more lemon peel... More

A littler bit out of the dowtown rush, we went there after a day shopping and visiting. Good choice of meals, inventive too. We were pleased to discover revisited american classics.

We had one of our best dinners ever at this small eatery. The narrow place uses a garage door to open the front. Across the way is a sun dabbled city park with tall trees. The service was excellent using a team approach. I suspect it was sometimes the kitchen staff that brought the food or asked how the soup... More

Five of us returned to Park Kitchen to celebrate our recent return from Italy. We had not been there since some remodeling. We looked forward to an enjoyable evening. We were disappointed. First, the waiter was obviously disappointed that we did not order tasting menues. But at $50 for small and $60 for large, we thought the price too steep.... More

Innovative and excellent cuisine - Tapas and large plates too. We choose to have several of the small plates. I am still thinking of the yummy green bean tempura with aioli - YUM! Reservations a must!
